Had a really decent day yesterday fishing in the North Creek and Bayview ferry area. In 2 1/2 hours, I caught 15 trout (3 of which were legal keepers 17-18 inches), 2 bluefish, and 2 flounder (1 of which would have been legal if we were in season). Only bait I used was a 1/8 ounce Gama jig head and a 4 inch Gulp chartreuse swimming mullet. Creeks still loaded up with grass, so I concentrated on the creek mouths. Water temp was 72-73 degrees with visibility about 3 feet. Most fish caught were in 2-5 feet of water. High river salinity.

I fished the same places earlier in the week and caught 2 keeper flounder (again, if in season). One was 17 inches and the other was 18 inches. Thick fish! I returned both fish to the river ‘cuz it was the right thing to do. About 30 minutes later a very nice Marine Patrol Officer stopped by to visit.

LOL!!! Actually, yes— with the wind we have had I got a good blast of the river in my face from the spray off the bow! Not on purpose of course.
